Widening of US 160 east of Tuba City under way

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) will begin work next week to widen US 160 five miles east of Tuba City (milepost 314 to 319). The roadway widening will allow the installation of right and left turn lanes at Moenave Road.

Work began Monday and continue Monday through Thursday between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Navajo Nation time (6 a.m. and 4 p.m. for the rest of Arizona, which does not observe daylight saving time). There will be reduced speeds and single lane closures throughout the work zone.

The $948,000 project also includes installation of pipe liners inside existing culverts at 12 locations along US 160 and is scheduled for completion in late September.

The work zone will be clearly marked by temporary barricades and signage. ADOT advises drivers to allow additional time to reach their destinations and to proceed through the work zone with caution, comply with the reduced speed limit, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule. To stay up-to-date with the latest highway conditions around the state, visit the ADOT Traveler Information Center at www.az511.gov or call 5-1-1.
